Online bookings available with the North Pole visitor

It’s that time of year again for photos with Santa at Kent Station shopping center, 417 Ramsay Way.

Kent Station has an online booking system so customers can make a reservation for their Santa photos and visit rather than standing in line.

Santa photo packages start at $20. Both digital and printed photos are available.

Santa will be in a cozy cottage in front of the AMC Theatres. Walk-in appointments will be taken if a time slot is available.

Santa made his first appearance Nov. 25 at Kent Station and will be at the shopping center Thursdays through Sundays for the first couple of weeks with a Monday through Saturday schedule Dec. 18-23.
